Bobbi Sheahan’s  Interview  with Lorna d’Entremont

This week I was sitting on the other side of the interview table. Thank you to Bobbi Sheahan for inviting me over to her site for an interview about Kid Companions Chewerly , life after retirement, blogging about special needs or special needs books, and The Coffee Klatch Tweetchats.

Who is Bobbi Sheahan?

 Bobbi is an Assistant DA who gave up her legal career to be a full-time mom and part-time writer. Bobbi has been my guest twice on The Coffee Klatch Tweetchats and she is a joy to read and work with!

Bobbi Sheahan and Kathy DeOrnellas, Ph.D. are the co-authors of  What I Wish I’d Known About Raising a Child with Autism: A Mom and a Psychologist Offer Heartfelt Guidance for the First Five Years. See review here.

Bobbi participated in our Author Interview Series. Read here.

And, like I ended my interview, “Thanks Bobbi! It has been a pleasure to read your book, write the review, write an interview about you, and having you twice on Tweetchat. Who would not love a “retirement” like this making it possible to have all these wonderful experiences!”

These are the great questions Bobbi formulated:

  •  You are a grandma, a retired teacher, and now you are in a new chapter of your life.  Let’s start with Chewelry.  What is it, who invented it, and when did you become involved?
  •  How did Kid Companions Chewelry evolve?
  • Can you share some stories of how Chewelry has helped people?
  • Fidgets and things that can be chewed are useful for a variety of special needs, not just autism. Can you give a few examples of the children and families who have found Chewelry helpful and what is unique about Kid Companions Chewelry?
  • What made you decide to reach out to families with special needs, and how have you done so besides Chewelry?
  • It must take a tremendous amount of energy to do all that you do!  What keeps you going?
  • How can our readers connect with you (feel free to mention Coffee Klatch, Kid Companions, Special Needs Book Review, Twitter handles, etc.)? [Also, if you want to insert extra Q&A about your other media outlets, I’d love it…]
